Abstract

We are currently experiencing a coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. A vulnerable group of being infected by this pathogenic agent is health personnel. For this reason, the Health Technology Assessment and Research Institute (IETSI in Spanish) of the Peruvian social insurance (EsSalud) has issued clinical recommendations on risk assessment and management of health care personnel in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, which we will summarize in this paper. An evaluation and management flow chart are included, as well as a table to determine the risk of developing COVID-19 infection.
